Virtualization is not a new concept. It's been around for decades and started with the mainframe. If you're looking for a way to kill some time, read VMware's History of Virtualization site; it has a lot of interesting details about where we were and where we are.

In concept, I relate mainframes more with Cloud computing rather than virtualization where you have massive computational power /storage at the Cloud/mainframe side and thin clients/terminals at the users side!!!!

There are very few people aware of that how invented virtualization. Jim Rymarczyk, who joined IBM as a programmer in the year of 1960 just as the mainframe giant. Still at Big Blue today as an IBM fellow and chief virtualization technologist


Dell Virtualization is used to centralize administrative tasks, improve scalability and work loads. Dell Server Virtualization | Dell cloud storage
